Brave New Girls: Adventures of Gals & Gizmos is the fourth volume of the Brave New Girls anthology series. The first three, Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets (2015), Brave New Girls: Stories of Girls Who Science and Scheme (2017), and Brave New Girls: Tales of Heroines Who Hack have so far raised thousands of dollars for the Society of Women Engineers Scholarship fund. Find them on Amazon.

The Coming Anthology

For the first time, I’m participating in an anthology of short stories from various authors. I so love the title, Brave New Girls: Stories of Girls Who Science and Scheme.


I can’t take any credit for the title. That all goes to Mary Fan and Paige Daniels, editors and the brains behind the book. This is the second BNG, the first being Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets.

Each year, they pub a new BNG anthology, and every year they give the profits from the sale to a charity that encourages girls to pursue careers in STEM (that’s Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) fields. This year the money is going into a scholarship fund run by the Society of Women Engineers.

Cool, right?

My contribution to BNG is called “Sweet Emotion”, a never before pubbed short from the Mothman Mysteries universe. And it’s the first Mothman Mystery written from Bridget’s POV!

When strange, new benefactors show up for her school’s Spirit Week and offer outrageous prizes, all the students whip into a competitive frenzy. All the students except Bridget whose internal creepiness meter humming.

Bridget draws from lessons learned in science class to get to the bottom of the mystery before the Spirit Week winner is chosen and his/her fate is sealed for good.

The anthology includes some really cool stories ranging from dystopian to sci-fi. Titles and Blurbs can be found here.


Brave New Girls: Stories of Girls Who Science and Scheme will be available in ebook and paperback formats from major online bookstores starting August 1. You can preorder for your Kindle now.

I’ll also have a few copies for sale at signing events this Fall.
